It is hard to believe that the holidays are here, it seems that it was just yesterday that i was celebrating Christmas in Colombia with my family. Wow, this year went fast. So it is time for some eggnog, hot chocolate, start buying all the presents and off course to take the pictures with the big buy, Santa Claus.
The Oaks, in partnership with HGTV, is hosting the North Pole’s most prominent resident at ‘Santa HQ.’ Families are encouraged to partake in an interactive, digital experience at Santa’s workshop.
Guests will be engaged during their visit with Santa due to Santa HQ’s incorporation of an augmented reality environment and captivating social media experience. Upon entering Santa HQ, kids will learn if they are on Santa’s naughty or nice list after being “scanned” at the Naughty or Nice O’Meter and spend time at an observatory to catch a glimpse of Santa’s remarkable world through special tablets. Visitors will also be able to take an “Elfie” (a photo opportunity as a dancing elf) and much more.
Take the whole family. The actual experience where you can play with the interactive tablets (or download the app on your phone) and check if you have been naughty or nice is free. It is a lot of fun to take the Elfie video and also to discover all the stations. The ELF-Ray vision app is super cool and kids of all ages will enjoy all the activities.
ThereYou can even rest on the comfortable couch as your kids play with the app and explore the place. Then if you are looking for the prefect holiday card, have your picture taken. They are offering amazing picture packages:
For 39.99 you get 6 printed photos (One 5 x 7" , One 4 x 6" , 4 wallet-size) and unlimited digital downloads.
For 49.99 you get 10 printed photos (Three 5 x 7", Three 4 x 6", 4 wallet-size) and unlimited digital downloads.
